Put a little bit of RTV sealant on the metal face and the face of the timing cover where it presses in. Use large socket and start tapping easy until it gets started evenly. Don't let it get started crooked or pop it out and try again. You'll get it.

Did you order a 3/4 windage tray? Use grade 8 bolts to put them in.

Topkat, when you get the cover on, be SURE to set the clearance of your water pump divider plate. It's important.

A 2x4 and a BFH works good. Be sure to lube the inside of the lip seal with some grease after you install it in the cover and before you install on the block.
